Overview


This debut collection of poetry by Katrina Vandenberg draws on different meanings of the title, carrying lines from one poem to the next and capturing the reverberations of events across time and place. One poem links an image of the poet's sister — paused in housekeeping work — to a maid in a Vermeer painting and a woman being "made over" on Oprah. Another compares an ex-lover's HIV to a 19th-century tulip epidemic. Quiet yet forthright, intimate yet generous, Vandenberg's poems map the intersections of history, art, love, death, and desire.
